Epic Words (2022 NaPoWriMo #24)

With a little digging I found another series of poetry prompts being provided by NaPoWriMo – 30 Poems in 30 Days. I’m starting in the middle and I’ll see how it goes as to whether I work to catch-up with the prior prompts or just carry on forward.

Prompt 24

Write a poem that uses similes inspired by “hard-boiled” detective novels.


Please forgive my gutter brain on this one.

Epic Words

Suffocate upon these epic words like a fly trapped below a fat ass in a port-a-potty at the county fair.

Their meaning denser than a black hole or even the politician stumping at the fair, kissing fried butter and eating babies.

Contemplate their depth with the passionate attention of a carny dog scratching its anal itch.

Then you will see the bright light at the end of the tunnel like the worm reaching the final inches in that very same dog’s arse.

Yes, these words are THAT epic.

Be well,
